The surprising mission of the Postal Service police who arrested Stephen Bannon

The USPIS may be having its biggest moment of prominence after the arrest of Bannon. He and three others allegedly defrauded donors to a massive crowdfunding campaign that claimed to be raising money for construction of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

A Coast Guard boat approached a yacht Bannon was on in Long Island Sound and disembarked a team to sweep the boat before federal agents boarded to make the arrest, said Chief Warrant Officer Mariana O’Leary, a Coast Guard spokeswoman.

In a news release, prosecutors said Bannon and another organizer, Air Force veteran Brian Kolfage, lied when they claimed they would not take any compensation as part of the campaign, called “We Build the Wall.”

Shake down, take down, your busted!

Now arrest the assholes who took Brian Kolfage. They need prison time for violating his rights as a disabled American veteran.
